Bear hangs out at local burger joint

LEAVENWORTH, Wash. --- A young bear stopped by Fresh Burger Café in Leavenworth Thursday morning.

In a video captured by an employee, the brown bear appears to sniff at the window, then moves on.

“We don’t really see bars too often around here,” explained Virginia Trigg, who captured the video. “This time of year we start to see them wander around more as the salmon in the river kind of die off.”

Trigg said she talked to staff at the Barn Beach Reserve next door, who told her they saw the bear wander up from the river area. She said the bear wandered off harmlessly.

If anyone sees a bear wandering through a populated area where it could get hurt, they should call the Department of Fish and Wildlife.
